(NEW YORK) — From all outward appearances, Taylor Swift and Harry Styles of One Direction are dating: they’ve been seen numerous times holding hands and they’ve also, according to People magazine, been spotted kissing. How long will this romance last? It’s hard to say, since Taylor admits in a new interview that she has no idea how to keep one going.
In an interview with the British edition of Cosmopolitan magazine, Taylor is asked what she still doesn’t understand about relationships, and she replies, “How to make them last. I’ve never had a really long relationship, so I have no idea what that’s like. Wish me luck for the future!”
Perhaps the future is here. Though Harry is four years younger than Taylor, she tells Cosmo UK that age is never an issue for her. “I really don’t have any rules about dating when it comes to height, age, career choice, anything like that. It doesn’t matter,” she tells the magazine. “It’s really more about strength of character. When it comes to age I’ve been all over the map!”
Last month, Harry told the same magazine that he, “finds ambition really attractive … if someone’s good at something they love doing. I want someone who is driven.” Sounds like Taylor’s the perfect match for him.
Still, the two have yet to confirm their relationship, and their friends are clamming up as well. Asked what he thinks about Taylor and Harry dating, Ed Sheeran, who’s friendly with both of them, feigned ignorance, telling reporters Friday night, “I don’t know what you’re talking about!”
As for Harry’s bandmate, Louis Tomlinson, he also wouldn’t confirm the relationship. Asked if he was happy that the two had gotten together, Louis told reporters Friday night, “Well, I don’t think they’re talking about whatever’s happened between them now.” He would only say that he was happy that they’re “good friends,” adding that he thinks Taylor’s a “lovely girl.”
As for Ed, he did go so far as to say why he thinks any guy would be lucky to date Taylor. “She’s a very warm, loving person and I think she kinda spreads that around to her fans and family and friends,” he told reporters. “And I think if a guy pinned her down, they’d be happy with that.”
